Re: The Sunbeam Alpine was the FIRST BOND CAR

I had a Sunbeam Alpine in the late 60's.  It was a wonderful car -- fun to drive, amazing cornering (it was light and well-balanced).  1600cc aluminum head inline 4 with dual downdraft carburators (tuned by ear).  I once spun out on a wet curve and stripped several lug nuts, causing one wheel to come off completely.  I limped into the next town on 3 nuts/wheel and found replacements... ah, the things we survive in our teenage years ;-).

The biggest downside of the car was how hard it was to find repair parts in a small town in the midwest -- this was before Fedex and UPS.  The Rootes Group didn't have much of a footprint in the US in those days.  But it still makes me want to go shopping for one every time I remember how much fun it was!

The second Bullitt picture is not the 1968 but the 2008-9 Bullitt Mustang that Ford produced to honor the film.  It's a great car I own Serial number 6001 and have had it since new.  edit: Oopps didn't see slide 9....

Yes, rruther2, it's almost impossible to do a slideshow like this without a car from Barris. They did the atmobile, Munster Koach, Beverly Hillbillies truck, KITT from Nightrider and many more.

Maxwell Smart drove a Sunbeam Tiger (V8), not a Sunbeam Alpine in the opening credits of "Get Smart"...it was the dream car of my youth...it fact, I still wish I owned one.

Those who like the Bullitt chases scene should watch a 1973 film called "The Seven-Ups." That movie has a a similar chase scene, directed by the same director. It even uses the same (very easily recognizable) stunt driver as Bullitt.

Yes, wealthy characters did have car phones in some of the old movies, Tweet. I recently saw an old Bond movie (I think it was Goldfinger) and Sean Connery was talking on a car phone from his Aston Martin.
